Once in a lifetime opportunity to own this stunning Reading Estate sitting proudly westward atop Longview Road. Estate has 2.37 acres of beautifully manicured grounds on one of the most sought after streets on Reading's West Side. The esteemed architect George Earnest Robinson of Boston was tasked with replicating Bessie’s Cotswold dream home in England down to every last detail: Ashlar stone exterior walls interspersed with stucco and hand hewn white oak timbers, copper downspouts and gutters, decorative clay chimney pots..One example of how far she went to reproduce an authentic English residence is evidenced by the rough slate roofing which was imported directly from Great Britain. The interior detail of the residence boasts the sort of craftsmanship that reminds one that artistry and imagination are the genesis of all great structures. Sculpted by hand from rough timber, stone and cement this building stands as a masterpiece of early 20th century fine home construction. A must see!
